SDV 3100 HV

Streaming DAC Preamp

The Streaming DAC Preamp

In the SDV 3100 HV we have now created a digital / analogue converter which is even more complex and sophisticated than our previous converters, allowing us to double previous resolution levels: 32-bit / 768 kHz for PCM and DSD 1024 for bitstream data. This improvement required us to carry out meticulous refinement work on the previous converters, and at the same time develop a completely new USB receiver for these high frequencies.
The SDV 3100 HV and SD 3100 HV are identical in their mechanical and electronic construction except for the pre-amplifier section, which is additionally equipped with the SDV 3100 HV.
The SDV 3100 HV - and also a full HV system - can be controlled using the F 3100 remote control handset or one of the T+A apps.

Headphone Amp

Audiophile music enthusiasts like to use high-quality headphones, that‘s why we have build in a particularly good, high-performance analogue headphone amplifier.
The SDV 3100 HV is fitted with the volume control module of the P 3000 HV and has one analogue input, enabling it to be employed as pre-amplifier in a complete HV system.









There are three aspects which have a crucial influence on the sound characteristics of high-quality Hi-Fi equipment: their mechanical construction, their analogue technology and their digital signal processing. Only if the development team balances all three facets perfectly can the device as a whole satisfy the most demanding requirements.
This is why all our HV devices are built of pure aluminium, without any ferro-magnetic materials at all, and features five compartments separated and shielded by aluminium dividing walls.
The current / voltage stages – crucial to sound quality – which follow the D/A converter stages are of totally discrete, channel-separate construction, and feature our HV technology, as does the analogue output stage. This ensures that a pre-amplifier or integrated amplifier connected to it are fed the ideal input signal.

"We often put on a good show in audio, but this T+A SDV 3100 HV is the real deal. The balance of energy and sophistication of sound will appeal to many and it’s engineered to see out the next millennium. You need to audition T+A products carefully, because they will be yours for a very long time, thanks to being an extremely well-made and well-thought-out package. I’m afraid I have to roll that word out one more time; the SDV 3100 HV is an impeccable performer.

"In addition to its high-class transistor and hybrid power amplifiers, T+A now also offers a comprehensively modern media preamplifier and SACD drive that is world-class in every inch! Now I can finally return to the T+A’s high end wheel of fortune to discover even more of the HV’s fascinating cosmos with just a few turns." - Matthias Böde

"Wherever you take a look at the SDV3100HV, especially its multimedia capabilities, you will find competence and clever solutions. Again and again the opulent comfort package amazes, which even includes two headphone outputs as separate stages in potent "HV" technology – one of which was designed symmetrically – as well as a comprehensive menu from balance control to a selection of four digital filters to adjustable display brightness. The sound radiates a captivating aura of perfection even with supposedly less ambitious Bluetooth transmission and FM radio – which we have of course tried out as well.

In addition to its high-class transistor and hybrid power amplifiers, T+A now also offers a comprehensively modern media preamplifier and SACD drive that is world-class in every inch!

"Hirn trifft Herz
Der Streamer-Wandler-Vorverstärker SDV 3100 HV hat bei jedem Musikliebhaber, der sich nur annähernd in einer solchen Preisklasse bewegen kann, einen Platz ganz weit oben auf der Favoritenliste verdient. Der gilt selbstverständlich auch für das PDT 3100 HV Referenz CD/SACD-Laufwerk, das mit seinem reinrassigen Audio-SACD-Laufwerk von Sony einen erstaunlichen Beitrag zur gemeinsamen Performance der T+A-Geräte leistet. Bei T+A funktioniert nicht nur die Theorie, sondern auch die Anwendung. Und wie!

The Absolute Sound 3/2020 Editor´s Choice

"This stunning piece of mechanical and electrical engineering will most likely be partnered with T+A’s SDV 3100 HV DAC. But with every type of digital output on its rear panel, the PDT will work with any DAC. The custom CD/SACD transport is built around a massive, high-precision, all-metal disc mechanism designed and built by T+A (as is the control circuitry and software). Touch the front panel’s “open” button and the tray silently glides out. This is by far the smoothest and quietest transport RH has encountered. When it is connected by a proprietary link to T+A’s SDV 3100HV, the sound quality from CD and, especially, SACD is spectacularly great. The PDT 3100 HV is a joy to use, built beautifully, and sounds terrific."

"The pinnacle
Beautifully built, highly capable, feature-laden, and a joy to use, T+A’s SDV 3100 HV DAC and PDT 3100 HV CD/SACD transport are at the pinnacle of digital’s ascent from the early CD players to today’s highly sophisticated machines. The vast array of formats accessible by the SDV, coupled with the superb user interface, opens up a vista of musical discoveries. The SDV 3100 HV and PDT 3100 HV exemplify the astonishing transformation of the CD player into a highly sophisticated multi-format platform. In my view, there is no better way to exploit today’s vast array of options for accessing and enjoying digital music than via this T+A duo."

Wir sind ein bisschen stolz, wir freuen uns: Die beste Quelle, die uns je begegnet ist, stammt aus Deutschland. T+A hat mit dem SDV 3100 HV eine neue Welt erschaffen - in der Entwicklung, im Finish und vor allem in der Klangqualität. So kühl die Komponente von außen aussieht, der hörbare Output glüht vor Intensität. Hier gibt es ein unvorstellbares Maximum an Informationen und Emotionen. 24900 Euro sind grausam teuer. Aber: Dafür bekommt man das Vollkommene."

"T+A PDT/SDV 3100 HV
Towering in every sense, this T+A digital pairing is both a massive engineering achievement and a fabulously refined way to bring together the two worlds of physical media and file-based / streaming music. It´s as future proofed as you might hope for, and while not exactly red in tooth and claw, it transcends mere sonic firework by reproducing the most bombastic musical event with unmistakable style."

"Vorstoß zur Weltspitze
Ein CD/SACD-Laufwerk wie der sprichwörtliche Fels in der Bandung. Der wortwörtliche aus dem Vollen gefertigte Drive besticht mit Präzision und Ruhe, die sich in einem bestechend aufgeräumten, übersichtlichen und dreidimensionalen Klangbild mit extremer Auflösung, aber vollkommen unangestrengter Leichtigkeit und Souveränität äußern. In Verbindung mit dem SDV 3100 HV profitiert die Wiedergabe von der proprietären IPA-Link-Verbindung, die auch SACD-Daten überträgt."
